The mercedes Mclaren SLR may not look super exotic (with the exception of the goldwing doors) but don’t be fooled. Some think it bears a striking resemblance to the mercedes SL55 but looks are about all that it has in common. This super car is one of the fastest and most technologically advanced sports cars on the road. It’s supercharged Mclaren tuned V8 engine produces over 615 horsepower, launching it from 0 to 60 in under 3.8 seconds with a top speed of over 200mph.. The body of the car is made of a super light and very strong carbon fiber composite material. The SLR is also distinguished as the first series production vehicle to utilize a front crash structure made exclusively of carbon fiber. The carbon fiber crash structure of the Mercedes SLR absorbs four to five times more energy in a severe frontal collision than similar structures made of conventional steel. The brake system alone can decelerate the SLR up to 1.3 g, producing the theoretical equivalent of 2,000 horsepower. In addition, an innovative airbrake in the form of an adaptive rear spoiler in the trunk lid increases downforce, improving stability and braking even further. Under hard braking above 59 mph, the air brake pops up at a 65-degree angle, helping to stop the car from 62 mph is just 114 feet.

In this video they show off the Mercedes Mclaren SLR and compare it to the old Mclaren. They also run a lap on their test track to see how it compares to all the other super exotic sports cars that they have tested. As you will see in the video, the Mercedes Mclaren SLR actually posts a better time than any other car; beating the Porsche GT, the Lamborghini, the Ferrari, and the Zonda!!!!
